In a medium saucepan, combine chicken, stock, quarter onion, salt, and clove of garlic; bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle and the juices flow clear. When placed in the center, an instant-read thermometer should read at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius).
